Episode Recap

In the Forman basement, Jackie comes in with some cheese samples from work and offers them to Hyde and Fez, who ask what's wrong with it, then eat it anyway when she says that it was in the garbage. Kelso comes in and tells them that he was hiding in the closet and overheard Casey making reservations for the honeymoon suite at Les Motel for tomorrow night, and that Eric will freak out when he finds out. Hyde tells him to keep his mouth shut about it, and then tells Fez that he especially means him, because he can't keep a secret at all. Kelso once again brings up the fact that Jackie was kissing the manager at the cheese shop; she tells him to stop bringing it up as it was only one guy. [Opening credits.] [Scene change: Fez struts towards the camera.] In the Forman driveway, Fez comes out of the house and sees Eric on his way in; he tells Eric that he's sorry, but won't say what he's sorry for. He then tells Eric that if he were to guess that Fez were sorry that Donna will be spending the night with Casey in the honeymoon suite of a motel, then he'd be right. Eric is shocked, and then horrified when Fez goes on to provide details as he imagines they'll happen. In the Forman living room, Bob sits with Joanne, Red and Kitty and toasts his divorce. Kitty tells him that he should drink alone when thinking about his divorce, but Bob says that he's happy about it because now he can do things that he couldn't do before. When asked to give examples, Bob tells them that he could marry Joanne, which completely shocks her; she begins laughing and so does Kitty. Bob asks why she's laughing; Joanne tells him that they've never talked about marriage before and she just finds it funny that he'd bring it up for the first time in front of strangers. Bob is upset, and leaves; when Joanne says that she upset someone, Kitty agrees, saying that she and Red aren't strangers to her. [Scene change: Donna smiles up at the camera and twirls around.] In Donna's bedroom, Donna is getting ready for her date with Casey; Jackie asks what the two of them are doing tonight, and Donna says that Casey's keeping it a surprise. Jackie asks how Donna feels about Casey, and when Donna doesn't really know how to answer, Jackie asks how Donna feels about his hair, his body and his car; the holy trinity of love. When Donna confirms that she likes all three, Jackie tells her that she's ready for her surprise from Casey, and to make sure that she shaves her legs for her date tonight. In the Forman basement, in the circle, Eric tells the guys that he phoned the motel and Casey does have reservations there for tonight; Kelso tells the guys that he found a phone number in Jackie's pocket, and he's sure that she's cheating on him again. Hyde tells them both to be cool about it. Eric tells them that he's not jealous, he just likes Donna as a sister... a sister that he's done it with, and he's just looking out for her. Hyde tries to console Eric by telling him that maybe Donna and Casey won't do it at the hotel, and when Eric asks if he really believes that, Hyde says no. Kelso tells Eric that he should do something about it, just like he is with Jackie; he's stalking her. In Jackie's bedroom, Jackie sits on the bed and reads a magazine. The phone rings; it's Kelso, but he tells Jackie that he's Phil, as that's the name on the piece of paper that he found in her pocket. He asks her who Phil is, and she tells him that Phil is the guy who delivers the sausage, which Kelso takes the wrong way, and calls her a tramp. He then asks her who's singing to her (she's listening to Peter Frampton Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours). Jackie hangs up on him, but he calls back again and again, and finally has Fez call for him. [Scene change: Red walks across the screen, Kitty dances towards the camera.] In the Forman kitchen, Kitty tells Red that he has to go talk to Bob. Red doesn't want to, but Kitty tells him it's either that or else he has to talk to Joanne. Red chooses Bob, but then looks out and sees Bob moping in the driveway, so decides to talk to Joanne. At Les Motel, Eric knocks on a door; Leo answers it. He's in the room with three scantily clad girls. Eric asks if he knows if Donna is there, but Leo simply says that he didn't think to ask any of the girls if they were Donna. Eric tells him that he's there to rescue Donna the way that Luke Skywalker rescued Leia in Star Wars. Leo tells Eric that the honeymoon suite is across the hall. Eric is about to knock on that door when he hears Donna's voice inside, exclaiming about the tiny soaps. Eric hesitates, and then asks himself what he's doing. He sits down in the hallway to think. [Scene change: Eric falls towards the camera.] At Les Motel, Eric tells Leo that he just couldn't go through with it, he couldn't knock on the door because he came there for himself, and not for Donna; Leo isn't really interested, and asks if Eric could find someone who ~doesn't~ have three girls in his room to talk to. In the Forman living room, Red tells Joanne that Bob likes her; Joanne says that she knows, but she's just not good at marriage, and explains that her first husband was very sweet before they were married too, but then afterwards, he turned into... Red. Red tells her that Bob is just nice, loyal and has a big heart, which is perfect for a "pushy gal" like her. In the Forman basement, Eric comes in, angry. He tells the guys that he still has feelings for Donna, but can't do anything because she has feelings for someone else now. Kelso starts making fun of Eric, but then tells Eric that he shouldn't leave Donna alone. He then leaves to go stalk Jackie. Hyde tells Eric that he has a stack of Playboys in his room, and it's time to use them. In the Forman driveway, Kitty tells Bob that he's moving too fast in his relationship with Joanne; Bob says that that's how he does everything. Kitty explains it to him, using food as an analogy, and asks what happens when he eats food too fast? Bob answers that he gets gassy. Kitty continues, and tells him that when that happens, people leave the room; Bob understands. Red and Joanne come out, and Kitty says that they'll leave the two of them alone; she and Red go in to the kitchen. In the Forman kitchen, Kitty tells Red that there'll be no marriage talk from Bob; Red says that Joanne is expecting it. They both panic, and lock the doors. At the mall, Kelso sneaks into the cheese shop and uses a magazine to hide his face, but Jackie sees him and asks if he's spying on her? Kelso tells her that he is; she says that he should go home. Later on, she's handing out cheese to mall patrons, and Kelso goes by on the kiddie train. Jackie tells him that he's crazy, but Kelso tells her that he just can't stop thinking about her kissing the cheese guy and he's a mess. Jackie says that he needs to get over it and move on, but Kelso says that he can't. In the Forman basement, Donna comes in and asks Eric why he was at the Les Motel last night, then says that she knows why, and it was him who pulled the fire alarm all night until she and Casey left. Eric admits that he was there, but then tells her that he was fine with their break up until he saw her with Casey, and then it was like it was all fresh again, and he just couldn't take it. Donna says that she understands, and she felt the same way when he started dating other people too. Eric promises to stay out of her business, but also tells her that Casey is all wrong for her. Donna promises to stay out of his business too; Eric comments that he'd better get some 'business'; they hug. [End credits: In the Forman basement, in Hyde's room, Hyde is sleeping. Eric comes in and wakes Hyde up, saying that pulling fire alarms all night must be tiring. Hyde claims that he didn't do it to be nice, he just always wanted to commit a felony; Eric tells him that he says that, but all Eric hears is "I love you, I love you, I love you."]
